Featured in The Demon

A few months ago I wrote an exposÃ© of MPs Coke habits. Well, “exposÃ©” is perhaps too strong and foreign a word- I e-mailed all of the members of Parliament and asked them if they like CocaCola or Pepsi for a cheap gag.
Excitingly, this attracted some attention, being featured in the popular B3ta newsletter, as well real proper newspaper ‘Wales on Sunday‘- and now my media whoring has got it featured in another publication: my University’s newspaper.
Amazingly, it’s been featured in the right hand column on page three- the first thing you’d see when you open the paper. I’ve run some tests by opening the paper 500 times and seeing where my eyes go, in order to validate this assertion. Incredibly, it also gets a frontpage plug directly underneath the main banner. The only thing that really upstages me an interview with Patricia Hewitt, the Health Secretary.
I’m somewhat proud that I’ve probably managed to knock an insightful piece about the election of Hamas the implications for the Palestinians back a couple of pages- just so I can talk rubbish. Unlike Wales on Sunday, my words have been pasted in, my name on the byline, prefixed by the word “Columnist”.
